    Default horarios rotativos

    Hi Guys,
    Any idea of how to say Horarios Rotativos? meaning those workers who have a full time job, but their timetable varies acording to days. They may work , for instance, Monday , Tuesday from 9 to 5 but Wednesday, thrusday and Friday from 5 pm to 1 am


    Thank you
    Diego

    Diegonel,
    The term would be rotating shifts or, if talking about the actual schedule of shifts, print or electronic, it would be rotating shift schedule.

    Sometimes also referred to as 'swinging shifts'

    KenCR and penningdcp,

    Thank you very much for your contribution.

    KenCr,

    I also thought of SWING SHIFT , but the dictionary does not give the definition I quoted first. Have a look:

    OXFORD LEARNER'S DICTIONARY 5TH EDITON
    swing shift (noun)
    (NAmE, informal) the shift (= period of time worked each day) from 3 or 4 o’clock in the afternoon until 11 or 12 at night; the workers who work this shift

    You are right about swing shift. In a rotating schedule, employees work all shifts on a rotating basis. Additional information at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shift_work
